PM Browne instructs health officials to acquire Monkeypox Vaccine


Listen to Prime Minister Gaston Browne here, in the video below, as he spoke earlier on Pointe FM:

The Ministry of Health Wellness and the Environment (MOHWE) wishes to advise the general public that the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared that the multi-country outbreak of monkeypox constitutes a public health emergency of international concern. CLICK HERE TO JOIN WHATS APP GROUP

As such, in keeping with WHO’s recommendations, the MOHWE has increased its monkeypox surveillance at our ports of entry and at health care facilities. We are also ensuring that we have the capacity to test for the monkeypox virus at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Center.

Monkeypox is a disease caused by the monkeypox virus which is similar to the smallpox virus. Persons typically experience a fever, a rash, swollen lymph nodes and muscle pain.

Anyone experiencing these symptoms should seek attention from their health care provider. Physicians are reminded to report any suspected cases monkeypox to the MOHWE’s Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit.


Monkeypox is spread from person to person by direct contact with the rash, bodily fluids (fluid, pus or blood from skin lesions), and scabs. Clothing, sheets, towels and other objects can also be sources of infection.

The virus is also transmitted from a pregnant mother to her unborn child. Respiratory secretions can also be a source of infection.

There have been no laboratory confirmed cases of monkeypox in Antigua and Barbuda since samples sent to the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) have all been negative. Samples will be processed locally at the Sir Lester Bird Medical Center in a few weeks.

There is no specific treatment for monkeypox. However, the public is advised that social and physical distancing, frequent handwashing and wearing facemasks may prevent infection.

Persons are therefore strongly advised to practice these public health and social measures during this carnival season to avoid becoming infected with the monkeypox virus. CLICK HERE TO JOIN WHATS APP GROUP

  1. Monkeypox is spread from person to person by direct contact with the rash, bodily fluids (fluid, pus or blood from skin lesions), and scabs. Clothing, sheets, towels and other objects can also be sources of infection.

    However, the public is advised that social and physical distancing, frequent handwashing and wearing facemasks may prevent infection

    HOW TF WILL frequent handwashing and wearing facemasks prevent infection if its spread through direct physical contact with an infected person who is visibly symptomatic or their clothing or bed linnin.

    Also 96% of persons infected are SPRATS. its predominantly spread in the man on man community. So is there a vaccine for Gay?

    Fuk man!

    Ayo just full a fuck

    • You sound uneducated making a bunch of noise like you’re saying something proper. How can you say hand washing won’t make a difference or face masks? Does that make sense to you. Every measure of prevention make sense. Before you cast Ignorant comments just ensure you’re smart and can really justify your stupidity. Dumb F

  2. Virtually two-thirds of the world’s population has now taken the Covid-19 vaccines, and without a shadow of a doubt, mankind’s immune system has been compromised and weakened by them.

    Any dormant or latent viruses, illnesses and diseases are now running rampant due to over vaccination and requests for additional boosters.


    Hence the current plethora of bodily malfunctions in existence since the introduction of these dangerous vaccines.

    Two years prior, never a problem like today!

    Many medical experts have been silenced – again – for highlighting what these vaccines are doing to our immune system.

    You only have to witness the amount of times that the fully vaccinated are getting Covid-19 over and over again.

    Many of you may be surprised by the Prime Minister’s pronouncements on the MONKEY POX … I was expecting it, I just didn’t know when he would say it.


  3. Who go take that hmmmmm still trying to kill us in so many ways ..I do hope it back fire

  4. The WHO says they are not sure about the efficacy of the MP vaccine so if you take it you will be participating in a clinical trial…💩💩

  5. ❌…right in time for the
    De Pepperpot we call #CARNIVAL!

    • I’ve been saying the same said things.

      These globalist and governments call them conferences, but in reality they are better known as LOCKSTEP MOVEMENTS, ensuring that they are all in accordance and agreement to keep mankind in fear and under control.

  6. I took the Covid 19 vaccine and the booster. Right now I am confused about the monkey box . My question is , after taking the vaccine for monkey pox can you still get it ?

  7. Questions…

    1…will they be using the #smallpox vaccine(s) which are already available?

    2…have they developed new vaccines to deal with the #monkey pox?
    If so, why the ‘hush hush?’

    3…allegedly, Africa where this virus – monkey pox have being circulating, does not have access to the available vaccines, so, where will Antigua/Barbuda & REDONDA be getting their supplies from? The Gates Foundation, WHO, CHINA?


    • The vaccine they are going to use is for both monkeypox and smallpox. The real question is…is this outbreak really monkeypox or is it immune blistering – a side effect of the mRNA vaccines. Only countries that used the mRNA vaccines are having monkeypox issues. However, Bill Gates made this comment in an interview…”what if bio- terrorists spreads the smallpox virus in say 10 airports, how would the world respond to that.”
      And yes, GAVI and CEPI both Bill Gates created/ funded vaccines organizations will be honored to give vaccines to the poor…the people he wants off the planet. When Bill Gates talks, I listen – because he tells you what they’re planning to do. And then the media applauds him for being a sage.
      Btw, how come Haiti only had 800+ deaths from covid in a population of 11.6+ million and only a 1.4 % vaccination rate. Could their use of Cloroquine (for malaria) be the reason?

  8. Of the 16,000 European pox carriers, 12,000 are white.
    The gay (LBGTXYZ)world is mostly white, minority black.
    In Africa is mostly the monkeys have the pox.
    Europe does not have monkeys.
    Do white people catch it from the monkeys in Africa? If so How?

    • 🤣@I don’t know my name…
      I read you loud abs clear.
      I know, what #Time it is, and with available technology’s from conception to developmental phases to distribution, we must pay attention to not only the #True_Stats but also the rhetoric used to control our movements!
